Microsoft patch troubles ?
Reboot wednesday passed with just a few isolated reports of trouble with the patches.

We would like to remind our readers we are interested in problems with patches. It's one of those cases where a community sharing such information as soon as possible can really work wonders.

However:
  • Do not forget to report such trouble back to Microsoft as well, it's the best way to get them to do something about it, and that kind of support is free.
    In the US call 1-866-PCSAFETY.
    Other coutries need to look it up on the Microsoft website, but it should be free just as well. [Fill in the country and then look in the column to the right]
  • Do not wait for others to go first. We're all interested in not being the first ones to hit the bump in the road. Unfortunately this results in increasingly longer periods of just waiting and being exposed to the bad guys. Those bad guys are not waisting a second in getting their exploits out there, either actively using it, either selling the exploit itself.
